Hand Signed by Tom Sheehan to the End Paper
New & Unread
Having worked with The Cure for over 20 sessions across 3 decades, legendary music photographer Tom Sheehan's archive offers a stunning photographic journey, shown in chronological order, of one of the most important and successful bands of the last 40 years. Tom Sheehan first met The Cure as chief photographer of Melody Maker in 1982 and would follow their rise from alternative cult band to international pop stardom over the next two decades: "The Cure are one of the greatest UK bands of the last 40 years and I'm proud to have photographed them so many times," says Sheehan. "Because Robert has a strong visual sense of exactly what he wants he understands the process. Not only does that make them an easy band to shoot, it makes them an exciting band to shoot. It's been a joy to work with them and be a part of their journey."
Featuring many previously unseen images, "In Between Days" is divided into three parts focusing on specific phases of their history: Part 1 (1982-84) traces their early travels at home and abroad, also including portraits of Smith's parallel career in Siouxsie & The Banshees and the side-project The Glove. Part 2 (1985-89) highlights their imperial period through a trio of classic albums The Head On The Door, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and Disintegration, including rare behind the scenes images from the celebrated 'The Cure in Orange' concert film. Finally, Part 3 (1990-2005) collects Sheehan's latter portraits of Smith and the group as they cement their status as one of the biggest alternative bands in the world, still touring today. Each section is accompanied by an essay by acclaimed Author and music journalist Simon Goddard (Ziggyology).
